Who wants to go to Emory? Summer 2013 ABSN/MSN - page 6

To anyone else who put in an application to Emory this fall and is anxiously awaiting news from the office of admissions: let's wait together! Only about 8 weeks until this seemingly impossible wait... Read More

    Does anyone know when the decisions for the Fuld Fellowship are awarded? Or when we will know if we qualify for any type of financial aid?

    I was told we would find out if we are Fuld fellowship finalists in early March, and that interviews for finalists are tentatively scheduled for March 22. (I'm not sure how many people are interviewed for it.) I don't know about you all, but sometimes I feel like waiting for financial aid decisions is harder than waiting for an admission decision...

    Yeah I totally agree about that...because the financial aid decision will actually determine whether I go to Emory or not! I think the financial aid director said we should hopefully hear about all forms of financial aid (including need, merit-based and endowed scholarships) by early March...the wait seems so long though!!

    I completely agree! My final decision on where I go is basically going to come down to where I get the most aid. What other programs are you deciding between? Right now I'm deciding on between Penn(174k), Emory ( 110k) and Thomas Jefferson( 68k) . I know the rankings don't really matter but I just don't know what to do before I know about aid! I already sent my deposit for Emory but I can't send it for 2 more schools, decisions, decisions ....

    Totally agree. I really like Emory but it is so crummy that they are making us commit over 100k to their program and pay 250 before we even know about financial aid.I am kind of stuck too--I can't pay multiple deposits. If we don't hear back about financial aid in the next week I will call admissions, explain my situation and see what they say.

    If anyone knows a current student in the program that can pm their information so I can ask them a few questions that would be great. I am having a really hard time connecting with current students and I have a lot of questions!

    @meep05 did you know if you log onto the admitted students, under the get connect portion of the site, there is an email to ask for a current student mentor? i'm hoping they will pair us soon so we can ask questions!

    I'm in the same situation! I've already paid a deposit to Jefferson, but am really debating between Emory and Columbia. I would love to go to either school but it's going to come down to cost for me... I just wish Emory would provide financial aid awards before the deposit is due!

    SMB13 I too am debating between Emory and Columbia... I would love to chat with you and ask you a few questions if you're up for it! I can't PM since I don't have enough posts but my email address is sjames@sandiego.edu if you get a second and could shoot me an email? Thank you and I look forward to talking to you!

    Has anyone heard anything about financial aid?

    Congrats to all of those that have been accepted! I finished the ABSN portion in August and I definitely know I made the right decision by choosing to attend Emory.

    If anyone has any questions feel free to post or PM me....I know this can be a nerve-wrecking time making decisions on which school to choose and also considering financial aid options. Congrats again!

    I still haven't heard anything from financial aid. One of my parents just recently sent in their CSS profile, so I expect that it will take a while for processing. I really want to hear something about the scholarship/fellowship soon though. Even if it's bad news, at this point I just want to put an end to this long wait.

    T-Dasha, do you happen to know how Fuld Fellowship and Woodruff Scholarship applicants are notified (by phone, email, letter), and if they contact everyone who applied, including those who aren't selected?

    All of the unknowns are so overwhelming! I am probably annoying the heck out of my family members with my constantly frantic mood. I just want to go to Emory so badly, and it won't be possible without significant outside help. Hopefully next week we will all get more info...

    On a lighter note, have you all checked out the school email accounts? I know it's not much to get excited over, but it makes my future at EU feel a little more real.

    I e-mailed KK and she said that we should be hearing some financial aid decisions by Friday !!
